Propane shortage prompts N.M. Governor to declare state of emergency
The state of New Mexico is experiencing a propane shortage, prompting Governor Susana Martinez to declare a state of emergency.
The freezing weather means propane is in high demand, and there is not enough to go around.
There are state regulations that limit the number of hours that propane suppliers can drive to deliver propane across the state.
The Governor's order suspends those regulations so that those suppliers can move propane through New Mexico as fast as possible.
